ROUND ROCK, Texas – Locals will now have more time to grab a drink in Round Rock after a city council vote on Thursday.

  • Round Rock extends liquor hours
  • Now serving until 2 a.m.
  • Previously cut off at midnight 

City leaders voted to extend liquor service hours until 2 a.m. for all bars and restaurants within the city limits.

Before this change, only places in Travis County could serve drinks until 2 a.m. Williamson County was limited to serving until midnight Sunday through Friday, and until 1 a.m. on Saturday.

Council members approved the change after 80-percent of voters said they were in favor of it during the midterm elections. Before the election, southeastern Round Rock bars and restaurants were only permitted to sell beer and wine.
